I really like the new design, but my favorite is still the first one. I liked how it leaned out from its foundation towards the river.

This project has been on hold for too long. The former version (260m) was terrible, they ruined the cute 388m. I like the newest one very much anyway, so futurist.

After being on hold for ages, I think this should be started soon. According to this release, HKC Holdings has just bought the land. Plus, they announce the project as their newest one on the cover of their website (where you can download the video). The project is also listed on SOM's website. The new name of this project is White Magnolia Plaza I think, not North Bund Tower anymore. Notice that SOM's page doesn't list many of their projects if they haven't many chances to become real.


Btw, here is an old pic (july 2006) of the plot. It's the big green one. Pic by giallo


The whole waterfront area is becoming a wall of 100-180m towers within 2010-2012.

When built, this tower should be Shanghai's fourth tower by roof (after SWFC, Jin Mao, Wheelock Square) and fifth by spire (adding Shimao International Plaza) excluding all other 297m+ proposals which haven't been approved yet.
